mini-icmpd - simple icmp keep-alive daemon written in C.

how it works. it sends icmp packets to specific ip addresses
given in command line with -d option (can be used multiple times)
interval can be given with -t option in seconds (default is 60)

can be used as helper to linux advanced routing with Julian Anastasov,
http://www.ssi.bg/~ja/ patches.
it requires keep-alive packets sent to all gateways so kernel can learn
that some of the links has came up again after failure.

installation:

$ make

will do almost all the work :)

usage:

./mini-icmpd -t 30 -d 193.22.103.1 -d 217.91.231.1 -d 193.68.38.1

this will send every 30 seconds icmp echo request to
193.22.103.1, 217.91.231.1 and 193.68.38.1 ip addresses

max ip addresses to ping simultaniously = 16.
edit ping.h if you want to change some default values
